Biography

Geoff Tupholme retired from his full-time post as Professor of Mathematics at the University of Bradford and became an Emeritus Professor from 1 October 2010

Professor Tupholme was awarded his BSc with Special Honours in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield.  This was followed by his PhD in Mathematics from the University of East Anglia.

Subsequently, he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science (DSc) from the University of East Anglia for his "sustained, original and distinguished contribution to knowledge".

His first post was as an Assistant Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Dundee. He joined the University of Bradford as a Lecturer in Mathematics and was then promoted to a Senior Lectureship and finally a Professorship.  He took an extended leave of absence to be a Visiting Research Scientist in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Simon Fraser in Canada.

His long-standing research activities have followed different, but at times related, paths involving elastic and piezoelectric waves and pulses, acoustic pulses, and cracks and dislocations.  However, additionally, flourishing collaborations on heat transfer problems and on deformations of rubber bushes have been developed.
